Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

Amazing the number of forum topics that Owhizone leaves the final comment and everone gives up and walks away. It makes it difficult for those who think they know it all to converse with those of us that do.

Owhizone: your incessant obsession is really close to a nervous disorder. You may need professional counseling or commitment to a mental health institution. Your Obama care plan should help with cost. Hopefully they can get you back to reality quickly.

Latest news from Detroit: GMC has announced the name change of its premier SUV Denali will be now known as the McKinley. Previous owners will be able to purchase new decals for the older models.

I asked, "If anybody can cite a single instance where the US government has compelled a climate scientist to alter his findings, I'd like to see it."

Are you saying this Monika Kapacz published a fraudulent study. Got a link to it? Got a link to the quote so I can put it in context?

If you have evidence all these 197 Worldwide scientific organizations have been purchased by government, let me know.

If the anybody can cite a single instance where the US government has compelled a climate scientist to alter his findings, I'd like to see it.

Not everybody agrees that humans are contributing to global warming, but a very strong majority of climate scientists do.

Here is a list of 197 Worldwide scientific organizations that agree.

I can think of no scientific organizations that deny humans are contributing to global warming.

I never claimed everybody agrees with me.

If you think the topic is invalid and you'd rather talk baseball, why post hundreds of times here? Why not start a baseball thread?

You’re right. I was referring to the consequences to our egos, not to the consequences to society. As to that, I have 2 things to say.

1. I have little power to influence the direction of the country, so my opinions won’t make or break us.

2. Since this is a public forum, and since others might be persuaded, we should remember we have an obligation to build rather than to destroy. Some methods of argument build, and some destroy.

It’s the best of both worlds—we can enjoy the competition and be productive at the same time if we remember the last part of the Proverb. “So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.”

One should take neither sports nor argument personally, and inviting one to an argument is like inviting him or her to get a hit off you. Consider that statement in the context of arguing public policy.

If you hit a homer on me, it’s no big deal. Similarly, if I lose an argument, it’s no big deal because my views on public policy are changeable. If I lose, I need to change my view. No sweat. My public policy views aren’t connected to my ego.

I enjoy competition. I’m a man.

So let’s talk baseball. Let’s see your best pitch.

Or, in this case, let’s see if I can set the hook in your jaw. ?

Arguing and playing sports are a lot alike--the competition improves the competitor. The former hones physical skills and the latter hones reasoning skills. As Proverbs says, "Iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.

"That's about the third time you've cast that bobber out there."

Correct. I wanted to see if anybody cared to address the accuracy of Santorum's statement.

I love baseball. Generally, I watch few sporting events on TV, preferring to either play them or attend in person. Baseball is about the only one I'll watch on TV. It's that good.

Politifact stated the obvious, all right: Santorum's statement was false and misleading.
